Keyestone Group, a Hong Kong-based conglomerate and Hyatt Hotels Corporation, a leading global hospitality company, announced plans for China’s first Hello Kitty Hotel in Sanya, Hainan.
It is expected to open by 2025 as part of the Sanya Hello Kitty Resort – the first Hello Kitty theme park in Hainan Province.
The hotel will feature 221 rooms and villas adorned with Hello Kitty designs and other well-known and beloved Sanrio characters. The Sanya Hello Kitty Hotel will also be home to an exciting range of world-class amenities, including three signature restaurants and bar, a themed ballroom, a swimming pool and state-of-the-art spa and a fitness center, inviting guests to celebrate the joy of life while indulging in a truly special and whimsical stay.
To be built within the 52-acre Sanya Hello Kitty Resort, the hotel will offer guests and visitors an immersive and memorable experience intimately connected to and reflective of the theme park, enabling guests to live in the moment.
Guests are invited to embark on their very own Sanrio journey with enchanting interactive experiences, brought to life by innovative design and technology, and engaging story-telling elements that will appeal to Sanrio fans of all ages and cater to the growing demand for family-oriented tourism and hospitality offerings.

This is in addition to several milestone projects by Keyestone Group that are contributing to Hainan’s vibrant tourism landscape and boosting its profile as a travel destination of choice.
